PEP Clinical Case Analysis (CCA) Information
Time has been scheduled for CCA on the same day as your Simulated Consultation.
Random Case Analysis (RCA)
If RCA is scheduled, there is no advance preparation required by the PEP participant.
Clinical Based Discussion (CBD)
If CBD is scheduled, you are asked to follow the steps below. Cases need to be submitted at least two weeks prior to your assessment date for review by your Additional Medical Educator (AME).
In order to prepare for your CBD, please complete the required number of de-identified cases on the PEP Portal. On the PEP Portal, choose the “Assessments and Forms” tile on your dashboard, then choose “Clinical Case Analysis – Submission +” and enter the (de-identified) details of a case.
We suggest you choose cases that vary – suggestions include a chronic disease case, a new patient presentation, a child/adolescent case, a case with social or mental health issue.
Case studies submitted for CBD must not have any medico legal bearing. These case(s) must not be under AHPRA/ legal inquiry or pending resolution from a patient / third party complaint.
You can click save half way through and return to it later. Once you have completed a case, click on Submit. Repeat these steps so that the required number of cases are submitted to your AME.
It would also be helpful if you would send through to your AME any de-identified case notes you have for the case(s) via email. Your AME was copied in to emails sent to you confirming your assessment, so you can access their address there.
Generic information pertaining to both RCA and CBD
The RACGP requires your AME to use the PEP Clinical Case Analysis Rating to rate your CCA. Refer to the PEP Clinical Case Analysis Summary.
